A Microsoft Edge bug is causing the browser to become unresponsive and crash while watching YouTube videos or reading comments.
BleepingComputer has confirmed the bug on our machines, and it only takes a few seconds to trigger after a video starts.
In our tests, Microsoft Edge would become unresponsive when watching a video, and a circular loading graphic would appear. Eventually, the circular loading graphic will freeze, and the browser crashes, as shown below.
According to TechDows, who first reported on this issue, the crashes began after users upgraded to Microsoft Edge 90. In our tests, we are using Microsoft Edge 90.0.818.56.
